How can I modify the default skin? I'd like to make a few of the buttons launch some external applications.
There was an early alpha / beta skin editor but I'm not sure if this one is compatible with the current release. So as of now I think the only way to do that is to download the sourcecode and then edit and compile the MainMenu.dll with Microsoft Visual Studio.
Are you familiar with programming in Visual Studio?
It's not hard to edit this at all but you'll need to use Visual Studio to do it as far as I know. Maybe JustChat as some update on the skin editor.
Ideally they'd be launched with a 'back' button superimposed in one of the corner of the screen, to return to OM. And after being launched once, OM would just bring the running instance to the foreground.
